    Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

    I'm so happy with this backpack. At first I was a little skeptical for paying for a premium bag, but I certainly got my money's worth. Took a little while to get here, but I'm so happy with the quality and the custom design. Would definitely order it again, but it may last me a lifetime.

        Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

        I did a lot of research on this bag before making the purchase. I wanted to make sure that the layout would work for my needs, that the design would sit low enough on my shoulders so as not to interfere with my motorcycle helmet, and that the materials chosen would indeed provide the reflectivity I was looking for. This bag had it all. Using the online platform, I designed the PERFECT motorcycle commuter bag for my needs. It's compact and doesn't interfere with my head motion of the tail bag that sits behind me on the bike, but it's also roomy enough on the inside to accommodate all the things I need for my workday. The compartmentalization is thoughtful and practical. The reflective materials available to choose from allowed me to create a bag that is both stylish and utilitarian. And I love that. Great bag. My new favorite, in fact. I would definitely buy it again if I needed to. It's a good thing this one will last a while so I don't have to.

          Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

          I absolutely love my new bag! It's everything I wanted and more. It's comfortable to wear, stores my laptop perfectly, and I can fit so much in it. I longboard and bike everywhere so it's the perfect back pack to fit comfortably and securely on me. I squeeze a lot in my bag and it's the first one I've had that it feels extremely durable and won't let me down. I will definitely be purchasing more bags from here in the future.

            This model is updated from an older 'blogger' version - retains many if the classic features: bottle opener, padded laptop/tablet protection, side quick pull out zipper (think TSA checkpoint's, if you're not a 1‰ with Pre). Only gripe is the shoulder strap tends to snap off its single button holder, especially in airport xray machine's.

            The swing around large side access zipper needs to be a bit larger for my Apple 15" MacBook. The small swing around side zipper is a bit tight for larger hands. Plan to add 3 Way Accessory Case.

                Comments about Custom Swig Backpack:

                I've had a Timbuk2 since I was in college but wanted to get a traditional backpack because it seems like I'm commuting with more and more stuff. The swig is awesome. This backpack distributes the weight very well and the straps are comfortable. You can put a lot of stuff in this bag and it is flush to your back when your wearing it. Because of the velcro straps and clips of the main flap you can compress the space your not using. There is only one bottle holder but you are sacrificing that to have side access to your laptop without opening the whole bag. I use that all the time. Also, there are many small pockets on the inside for samller accessories, chords, etc...
